Détails:
The aircraft climbed steeply to 450 feet (140 m) after takeoff. The Caravan then stalled, crashed in a left wing low attitude and caught fire.
The fire could not be extinguished because the fire fighting equipment was not available at the site. The mobile extinguisher that was present in Jumla Tower was still in packed condition.

Probable Cause:

PROBABLE CAUSE: "The probable cause of the accident was due to the pilot's failure to put the aircraft in take off configuration. It seems that in all probability, the crew failed to carry out take off check-list and rolled the aircraft with full flaps up position at the critical time, which in turn resulted in premature steep take off and consequently the aircraft was stalled at an altitude not enough for stall recovery for the aircraft."
